This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/ for a great reference in pro football uniform history

Sports Logos for a great database of sports logos and uniforms

Dressed to the Nines – Baseball Hall of Fame for MLB uniforms

 

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

Hockey Heroes Set

Highlights

  • Ice Kings: 96 skaters, 12 goalies = 6 teams of superstars
  • Best of the Best: Supplement SOM’s 234-star All-Time Greats set
  • Galaxy of Stars: 31 Hall of Famers, 18 world stars, 9 Original Six greats
Full SummaryHere’s the set you’ve been waiting a decade for: Hockey Heroes brings you all the male players elected to the Hall of Fame since Strat-O-Matic’s All-Time Greats set of 2005 – Brett Hull, Mark Messier, Joe Sakic, Mike Modano, Chris Chelios, Chris Pronger and such non-North Americans as Dominik Hasek, Pavel Bure, Niklas Lidstrom, Peter Forsberg and Mats Sundin.

This set has much more: Hall of Famer Valeri Kharmalov, the Russian scoring king who never played in the NHL; on-their-way-to-the-Hall greats like Martin Brodeur, Teemu Selanne and still-active Jaromir Jagr, Jarome Iginla and Zdeno Chara; every retired player who has scored 500 goals (and most of those who have 400), such as Dave Andreychuk, Mark Recchi, Keith Tkachuk, Pat Verbeek, Pierre Turgeon, Jeremy Roenick and Peter Bondra; and not-to-be-forgotten Original Six stars Bob Baun, Roger Crozier, Paul Henderson, Flash Hollett, Claude Provost and others.

It’s a fantastic collection of stars assembled to form six well-balanced teams. And this set is ideally suited to be combined with the 234 All-Time Greats released by Strat-O-Matic in 2005.

Strat’s Description:

Fire on Ice:

  • Calgary Flames win first Stanley Cup in McDonalds’ final season
  • Trophy Habs: Montreal’s Roy (Vezina), Chelios (Norris) win top awards
  • Score Four: Lemieux, Gretzky, Yzerman, Nicholls with 150+ points

    Full SummaryThe 1988-89 NHL ended emotionally. Calgary’s only Stanley Cup championship to date was ultra-popular future Hall of Famer Lanny McDonald’s only Cup – in his final season. Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Steve Yzerman and Bernie Nicholls all had at least 150 points, as Lemieux topped the league with 199 points, 85 goals and 114 assists. Lemieux, Nicholls (70) and Yzerman (65) all had at least 65 goals.

    These are the six-pack of carded teams:

    Calgary: 51-goal scorers Joe Mullen and Joe Nieuwendyk joined future Hall of Famers Doug Gilmour, Al MacInnis and McDonald in a star-studded cast that included Hakan Loob, Gary Sutter, Gary Roberts, Theoren Fleury and Mike Vernon.

    Montreal: The Stanley Cup finalist had Vezina Trophy winner Patrick Roy in goal (2.47 goals-against average and .908 save percentage, both league-bests) and Norris Trophy winner Chris Chelios on defense, Selke Trophy winner Guy Carbonneau at center and future Hall of Famers Larry Robinson and Bob Gainey. The Habs weren’t all defense – 13 men were double-figure goal scorers, led by Mats Naslund (33) and Bobby Smith (32).

    Detroit: Steve Yzerman (65-90-155), Gerard Gallant (39-54-93) and Adam Oates (16-62-78) led the Red Wings to the Norris Division title.

    Los Angeles: The highest-scoring team in the league (376 goals) had Gretzky (54-114-168), Nicholls (70-80-150), Luc Robitaille (46-52-98) and four others who had at least 25 goals each.

    Pittsburgh: Lemieux (85-114-199), Rob Brown (49-66-115), defenseman Paul Coffey (30-83-113) and Dan Quinn (34-60-94) didn’t beat out Washington for the Patrick Division title, but sure had fun trying.

    Washington: The Patrick Division winners had Geoff Courtnall (42 goals), Mike Ridley (41 goals) and future Hall of Famers Scott Stevens, Rod Langway, Larry Murphy, Mike Gartner and Dino Ciccarelli.

Strat’s Description:

  • Rare Repeat: Penguins first team in 20 years to win back-to-back Stanley Cups
  • Capital Offense: Washington tops in regular season, not in playoffs
  • 100 to 1: Edmonton flash McDavid only man to 100 points

Neither Stanley Cup finalist was a division winner, but defending champion Pittsburgh and first-time finalist Nashville played a worthy final. When it was over, Sidney Crosby was the third in NHL history to win back-to-back Conn Smythe Trophy and his Penguins were the first repeat winner in 20 years.

The regular season belonged to Washington, which won the Presidents Trophy with 118 points and 55 wins. The Capitals had to be that good to win the ultra-competitive Metropolitan Division, which had four of the NHL’s nine 100-point teams … For the first time, four teams had win streaks of 10 or more in the same season: Columbus 16, Minnesota 12, Philadelphia 10, Calgary 10. Chicago set a franchise record with eight straight road wins.

Leading scorer Connor McDavid, the 100-point man, led Edmonton to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Auston Mathews, tied for second with 40 goals, and his other rookie teammates led Toronto back to the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.Four goalies won at least 40 games. Surprisingly, one of them was in Edmonton, Cam Talbot. He was tied at the top with 42 wins with Washington’s Braden Holtby, who was no surprise at all for the Presidents Trophy-winning Capitals. Holtby became the third goalie in NHL history to win 40 games for three consecutive seasons.

Note* Strat O Matic has inserted information on the ability to rob Home Runs in its ballpark info sheet.  This information is included on these labels where the “Homerun” reading is.  The asterisk is located on the appropriate side of “Homerun” to reflect the weather and ballpark effect charts.  As per the chart:

* Robbing HR Rule (14.5) – An * to the left of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a lefty batter. An * to the right of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a righty batter. Note, this applies to all HR/Flyout splits, not just ballpark home run chances

Strat’s Description:

  • Houston Strong: Like a hurricane, Astros storm to the first World Series title in Texas
  • Power Supply: Fueled by rookies, sluggers shatter MLB home-run record
  • High Heat: Sale, Kluber, Kimbrel, Jansen set strikeout records

 Between them, the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers had played 100 seasons without a World Series title, but the inspired and inspiring young Astros slugged their way to the crown, capping one of the wildest Major League seasons ever and giving relief to the Houston victims of Hurricane Harvey. In a year when teams combined to shatter the all-time record for home runs, the Astros hit more in the World Series than any team had, and they combined with their foes, the Los Angeles Dodgers, to set the two-team record.

The heroes on Houston’s 238-homer team included AL MVP Jose Altuve, who hit .346 to win his third batting title in four seasons, slugging OF George Springer, superstar SS Carlos Correa, second-year 3B Alex Bregman and late-season arrival Justin Verlander, who helped propel the Astros into the post-season by going 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA after a trade with Detroit.

The home-run feats were breath-taking. NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton hit 59 homers for Miami. J.D. Martinez hit 45 for Arizona and Detroit while slugging an MLB-best .690. The Yankees’ Aaron Judge broke the MLB rookie record with 52 HR. Teammates Gary Sanchez (33 HR) and Didi Gregorius (25) hit the most homers of any Yankee catcher and shortstop ever. No Cleveland middle infielder ever hit as many as SS Francisco Lindor’s 33 HR. The Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger broke the NL rookie record with 39 home runs. Rookies Paul DeJong (led St. Louis with 28 HR), Rhys Hoskins (fastest to 18 HR ever – 34 games), Matt Olson (set the Oakland record for HR in a month), Hunter Renfroe (set the San Diego rookie record for HR) and Rafael Devers (led Boston with .482 slugging) made powerful first impressions. Three Oakland rookies hit their first big-league homers in a single game – the first time that ever happened. Martinez and Scooter Gennett each hit four homers in a game. Washington hit eight homers in one game.

But ace pitchers had a powerful say, too, with a record number of strikeouts. Boston’s Chris Sale fanned 308 while walking only 43. Cleveland’s Corey Kluber struck out 8+ in 13 straight starts – only Randy Johnson has topped that. Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out 51 without walking a man. Houston had an astonishing 16 pitchers who averaged at least 10 Ks/9 IP. Boston closer Craig Kimbrel topped everyone with 16.4 per 9 IP. He fanned 126 while walking only 14.

And we haven’t even mentioned the MVP-caliber seasons by Charlie Blackmon, Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Joey Votto, Jose Ramirez, Bryce Harper, Mike Trout and all the other young superstars that make this season a must for table-game replays.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 1991-1992 6 Team Card Set (with printable file)

Strat’s Description:

  • Super Mario: Lemieux leads Penguins to second straight Stanley Cup
  • Superstars: MVP Messier, Roy (Vezina), Leetch (Norris), Bure (Calder)
  • Carded teams: Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, NY Rangers, Vancouver 

The New York Rangers had MVP Mark Messier, Norris Trophy winner Brian Leetch and the most points (105), but the Stanley Cup went to the highest-scoring team, the Pittsburgh Penguins for the second straight season.

Loaded with scoring champ Mario Lemieux (44-87-131), Kevin Stevens (54-69-123), Joe Mullen (42-45-87), Marc Recchi (33-37-70), Jaromir Jagr (32-37-69), Ron Francis (21-33-54), Larry Murphy (21-56-77), Paul Coffey (10-54-64) and goalie Tom Barrasso, the Penguins somehow finished only third in the Rangers’ Patrick Division, but went 16-5 in the playoffs, sweeping Boston in the conference finals and Chicago for the Cup.

Montreal’s Patrick Roy won the Vezina Trophy and Vancouver’s Pavel Bure won the Calder. LA’s Wayne Gretzky led with 90 assists to finish third in scoring with 121 points. St. Louis’ Brett Hull led with 70 goals and was fourth in scoring … Chicago rode Jeremy Roenick’s 53 goals and Ed Belfour’s 2.70 GAA (second-best to Roy’s 2.36) to the finals after finishing second to Detroit in the Norris Division.
